Design wows with modern palette, mood-enhancing light
THOUGHTFUL ELEMENTS MERGE to create a beautifully inviting setting for this high-end but informal trattoria and bar sitting at the base of the Maritime Hotel. A contemporary palette of gray tones with accents of white marble, brass, and blackened steel provides a welcoming backdrop. Connecting the north and south dining rooms, a 38-ft.-long bar clad in white quartz is visible from the plaza and provides a focal point. An undulating pattern of custom, 1960s-inspired marble mosaic pavers covers the indoor and outdoor floors; reminiscent of the sea, the pattern mirrors the hotel’s distinctive grid of porthole windows. Refurbished and polished terrazzo in the dining rooms are from the building’s original construction in the mid-1900s.
Mediterranean plantings adorning the patio and Mid-century-inspired lighting support the restaurant’s modern Mediterranean character and complement the hotel’s Mid-century modern vibe. Wall-to-wall glazing allows natural sunlight to flood the dining rooms for breakfast and lunch. Globes of lights over the patio and understated fixtures glowing in the dining room let the space transition seamlessly, providing an aura of romance and drama for dinner and late-night patrons. The glass door system also allows for flexibility to expand restaurant service onto the plaza during fair weather.
